When is a Crazy Compass a memory quilt? Winifred Sherman used purples and lavenders from two piece suits presented to her husband when he traveled in Nigeria.

The center of the quilt is the Hoopsisters' Crazy Compass, now available on CD with quilt blocks made in the embroidery hoop. Formerly a block of the month project, the instructions and designs are now available to purchase.

Winifred added the border with pieces of fabric from the center motif and others from memorable life events. What a beautiful way to preserve memories.
